BMW fans have all found themselves looking online to see where they could buy a 1M. Unfortunately, these cars are hard as heck to find in the United States, and instead the 128i’s are picked up in place of the 1M.
However, one owner of a 1M decided the car needed more power and did something crazy: dropped a big engine in the car. The engine used was BMW’s S85 5.0-liter V10 engine pulled from an M5 E60. That means this littler two door car was housing 550 horsepower, making it one of the most exciting 1-Series I’ve ever seen.
NM3355 was on hand while the car was drifting around a track and absolutely destroying its tires. Check out the video below to see just how intense this little car is. And also be sure to let us know what your dream engine swap would be in the comments below!
